Facts about Scotland, part 1
What item of cloth is Scotland popular for? The kilt, of course. The „short plaid“ reaches up to the wearers knees, but never touches the ground while kneeling.
The typical checked pattern ist called „tartan“. In former times, every clan had his own specific pattern and people disfavored men from other clans wearing kilts with their tartan.
It’s a rumor that Scotsmen wear nothing under their kilts*. In fact, the scotish men of the mid age have worn the so called „leine croich“ which was a knee-long linen shirt they knotted between their legs.
* Sorry for destroying your phantasies about good-looking highlander with nothing under their kilts.
